In this talk, we summarize the work in progress toward a full characterization of strange star–strange star (SS–SS) mergers related to the GW/GRB/kilonova events. In addition, we show that the a priori probability constructed from the observed neutron star mass distribution points toward an asymmetric binary system as the progenitor of the GW170817 event.
